Qualification for tennis at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom is determined not by any form of qualifying tournament, but by the rankings maintained by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women's Tennis Association (WTA).

Qualifying criteria

The main qualifying criteria were the ATP and WTA ranking lists as of 11 June 2012. The players entering were formally submitted by the International Tennis Federation. The ATP and WTA rankings are based on performances from the previous 52 weeks, and there were several tournaments, in the two-month period between the time of the rankings being frozen for entry, and the beginning of the tennis events at the Olympics. Players must have also have made themselves available for two Fed/Davis Cup events from 2009–2012, one of which must have taken place in 2011–2012, and have a good standing with their National Olympic Committee.

Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) can enter 6 men and 6 women athletes, with a maximum of 4 entries in the individual events, and 2 pairs in the doubles events. Any player in the world's top 56 is eligible, and NOC's have the option to enter players of a lower rank. Athletes are able to compete in both singles and doubles events. Doubles players within the top 10 doubles rankings on 11 June are eligible to bring any player provided that player has any doubles or singles ranking, and the number of players of the same country do not surpass the total of six.
